It is tucked away on a side street but the food was good. We had a reservation but still had to wait a little bit. The place is popular which is a good sign. We enjoyed it and would go back.

Very, very busy. Book for dinner. Excellent fresh food , especially fish and shellfish. Wines are a bit pricy, but good. Helpful friendly staff cope well with the full restaurant. All ages here - 8 months to 80 years , a good sign!

Great food, atmosphere and service. A tequila list a mile long makes this a popular spot in Pacific Grove. This place is happening and with good reason. Stop by once and you'll become a regular.

Decent food but nothing special. Reasonably priced. My burritos were pretty good, wife's salad was blah.
